Providing a safe and healthy activity for families was top of mind when AirTime Trampoline & Game Park opened its first park in 2012. As we expanded so did our commitment to safe jumping and high-energy fun. Each park has open jump areas where families can jump together along with separate mosh pits; dodge ball; a basketball “Jam Session” area; and even a special Tweeter section just for children six and under. In addition to these trampoline park staples, we are always adding new attractions leading the way with trend-setting activities. In fact our newest parks and those opening going forward will include a Ninja Warrior course, rock climbing wall, and airbag and battle beam. Most importantly, each court is staffed at all times by court monitors who are trained in first aid and will always be there to oversee the safety of all jumpers. We also monitor trends in safety making sure to construct all courts using the most up-to-date materials available today. Since we’re in the business of fun, you don’t want to go another day without experiencing a jump or a game at AirTime Trampoline & Game Park.
